THIS TERM'S TOPICS:
In Literacy we will be looking at connectives and how we can use these to make our writing interesting. We will continue to work on punctuating sentences and developing our handwriting. Our genres for this half term will be ‘Stories by Julia Donaldson’ and ‘Writing Letters’. Through these topics we will develop our understanding of characters, story writing and the structure of letters.
In Numeracy we will continue to develop our understanding of multiplication and division. Children will use their understanding of place value to add and subtract two and three digit numbers. By half term children will feel more confident completing column subtraction with borrowing and will be revisiting previously taught methods to ensure a sound understanding.
As Scientists we will be continuing to look at seasonal changes. Learning to identify the changes we see and why these happen.
As Historians we will be studying Ancient Egypt. The unit will begin by learning about where Egypt is and facts about daily life in Ancient Egypt. We will then move onto studying mummification, which is always popular with children! Children will then explore the pyramids and hieroglyphics in addition to gods and goddesses.
As Geographers we will be studying The World Around Us. Learning to name the seven continents and exploring our local area and our capital city of London.
As Creative Technicians we will be studying Healthy Eating. Through this topic the children will learn more about the different food groups and understand why a balanced diet is important. We will then move onto moving pictures. Exploring mechanisms such as sliders and wheels.
As Athletes we will continue to develop our fine motor skills and sporting skills through different team games.
As Linguists we will continue to develop our understanding of the language and our pronunciation.

As part of our science topics, animals including humans, Form 1 were given the task to classify a group of animals.
